BoomerangDirector: Reggie Hudlin, Eddie Murphy, Halle Berry, Robin Givens
Eddie Murphy plays Marcus Graham, a hotshot ad exec who's also an insatiable womanizer. He is thus hardly prepared for his new boss, Jacqueline, played by Robin Givens. In terms of things romantic, Jacqueline is nothing more or less than a female version of Marcus -- and now, for the first time, he's getting the runaround. Boomerang boasts supporting-cast contributions from Halle Berry, David Alan Grier, Martin Lawrence, Grace Jones, Eartha Kitt, Geoffrey Holder, and Melvin Van Peebles. Watch closely and you'll see director Reginald Hudlin in a bit role.

"Boomerang" is, quite simply, the best black-oriented film ever made. Eddie Murphy is his usual smoothly comedic self as uber-womanizer Marcus Graham. Halle Berry is warm and absolutely gorgeous as the girl who eventually reforms him. David Alan Grier and Martin Lawrence add humorous friendship and support as Marcus's business and personal buddies. Lela Rochon and Eartha Kitt are, respectively, appealingly kittenish and appealingly cougarish as conquests in Marcus's romantic life. Tisha Campbell adds spice and sass as a disgarded ex of our hero's. Chris Rock is stylishly funky and stylishly spunky as Marcus's company's office boy and Marcus's Number One admirer. And Robin Givens effortlessly walks off with the picture as Marcus's female counterpart, the woman who turns the tables on our guy and gives him a taste of his own love-'em-and-leave-'em medicine. "Boomerang" is, on its own, a fiercely funny, fiercely sexy, fiercely engaging romantic comedy. It is Robin Givens, however, who makes it cinematic heaven.
This movie was a real treat!! Especially Tisha Campbell as the nosy but easily aroused neighbor. The portrayal of African-Americans in a corporate world is just where we need to go. The film got away from stereotypical urban settings. The acting was superb, with the exception of Robin Givens. Grace Jones brought the rolling-on-the-floor-laughing aspect to it. After reading the previous review, I wonder why a white woman would have to say "get the movie you'll be surprised" Are African-American movies expected to be garbage?
I just saw this on USA tonight and really enjoyed it. I am a white woman and I can say that the movie is not just a ''black'' film, it's really slick and fun movie to look at for anyone. Also interesting to see Halle Berry 10 years ago. She absolutely sparkles, very pretty and fun to watch and Eddie Murphy is great, David Alan Greer, Grace Jones is her ridiculous self....really funny, entertaining.....get the movie, you will be surprised!
This movie is the epitome of Black Elegance the story itself is truly hilarious and although I can think of other actors that could have done Eddie Murphy's role, he nonetheless does an outstanding and tremendous job and I recommend to any one with a desire to see African Americans as something other than ''Boyz in the Hood.''
The best man, The brothers, Two can play that game and so on. All great movies but Boomerang tops them all. Great acting by Murphy,Berry,Lawrence,Grier and Chris Rock. Not to mention a great sound track. DVD please!
This is one of my all time favorites and I since we are in the 21st Century the majority of society has converted to enjoying such classics on DVD Players. Would someone please have Columbia House make this on DVD.
I would give my left nut to have this on DVD. This movie sets the bar for black elegance in entertainment. I used to watch this move every other day until my tape broke.
Of course Boomerang is a classic. How long will it be in the classic VHS state though? Still waiting for the DVD version. Can someone provide some insight on this?
This is one of my all time favorites!! Still waiting for the DVD version.
Loved this movie. Eddie, Robin, and Halle are hot in this movie. It is a must have. When will it be released on DVD?
This movie is the ultimate classic in relation to setting the standards for all the ballers out there
